Side Mirrors - Swing In?

do the outside mirrors swing in to save space? I have 09 LT sedan, so power mirrors are on it. When looking at Cobalts, thought i grabbed one and swung it in and thought "great, if i can get my daughter to do this when parking on the street at college....."
But i grab ours, and it has some give at seam of body color to plastic, but doesn't move (yet). There is plastic involved, so i don't want to push it!

If not all trims have this, is there an RPO code to confirm it?
If none have it, i will stop trying while i'm ahead.

thanks

Don't think any Cobalts have this option.

the mirrors on my G5 folded in, although it only really made it about a half inch narrower on each side....

Yeah it wouldn't save much space. You could get some small aftermarket mirror if you wanted to

only reason i folded them in is when i parked it in the shed for winter I had less than a half inch of space between the mirror and the wall backing my car in with them out....
I don't know about part numbers or anything but you can find them on ebay for around 40 bucks each... had to order one for one of my old friend's cobalt, his folded as well, after he knocked it off on a sign post.......
